As described on the website of The Huntington Library and Botanical Gardens, this scene shows the 18th-century French stone tempietto and statue, “Love, the Captive of Youth,” encircled by “French Lace” roses. I cannot positively identify the magnificent tree in the background on the left, but I was close enough that I can be sure it’s not a weeping willow. It reminds me of an Australian willow (Geijera parviflora) I’ve seen at South Coast Botanic Garden. If anyone knows, please leave a comment!
